See my other review for the Ohto Tasche Needle Ballpoint Pen. Again, Ohto
"outdid" them on this one. The point for the pencil is positioned far enough in
so I don't feel like I'm writing with a foot of metal out in front of my
fingers, but yet the pipe that carries the lead is long enough for any drafting
or mechanical engineering applications.
The photographs do not show the location of the eraser, but it is underneath the
silver cap which holds that black rubber O-Ring. When you twist off the cap you
can easily tell by "feel" alone that the threads were machined properly; there's
no "scratchy" grinding.
Another outstanding feature is when you press the cap to advance lead. You get
just the right amount. You don't get 2mm of lead, which will inevitably break;
rather, your supplied with about .75 to 1mm of lead. . . that's PERFECT.

This is a very attractive mechanical pencil body. But each time I've had one,
it's gotten a terrible jam and is rendered unusable unless you have a clean out
rod! If you are willing to stop and fix your pencil every so often, the design
of the Ohto Tasche is gorgeous and, despite its slimness, is very comftorable to
write or draw with.

Despite its size, it is very 'smooth', compact and good to write with. The
downsize is that the lead that comes out is too small and you cant change it.
However i really like the smoothness of this.

I am sorry I love this pen .... I would love to use it but it JAMS constantly
...... I am in class trying to take notes and jams.... you fix it take notes for
another 10 min then jams again .... I am sorry to say, I would love to have this
as my daily user, but it jams and wont let new lead advance through, the lead
advance mech is horrible that is where the massive failure is I sent an Email to
Ohto and never received a reply assuming they do not care that they made a
defective product, I read many reviews of others mentioning these things,
ignored them and here I am ..... I have had the pencil about 1.2 years now and
have not used it past the first month. go get a graph gear , kerry, or tombow
zoom 505, seriously don't look at this pencil!!! if you do buy this promise me
you will write a bad review when you discover the same as I have....

This review is from Ohto Tasche Fountain Pen - Fine Nib - Blue Body
, January 17, 2009
Having read the older reviews about poor writing ability, I felt compelled to
write a more recent review stating I find the Ohto Tasche writing ability to be
Using the default Ohto ink cartridge I find this pen puts down a fine line,
about the same as the Ohto F-Spirit. I suspect that when the Ohto cartridge runs
out and I replace the ink in it with Noodler's Black, it may write a slightly
thicker line, but, I anticipate it'll be just like the Ohto F-Spirit in this
Given how inexpensive this fountain pen is, it's a great deal. No idea if its
steel nib maybe more prone to damage if too much pressure is applied to it, but,
over the last three weeks, it's writing just fine for me.
My only regret about this pen is that it won't take an ink converter. I'm going
to have to resort to using a syringe to refill a used cartridge when I want to
use bottled ink. However, I do find that the Ohto black ink is fine (aside from
lack of water proof qualities). For the price and the size, that's a small price
